5 Things Happening at Gulf Coast

1. Parents: Gulf Coast High School and Champions for Learning will be hosting a virtual FAFSA Completion Event on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 from 5:30 p.m.- 6:30 p.m. The event can be accessed via the following WebEx link Gulf Coast FAFSA Completion.

Please have the following items available for you to reference during the WebEx:

· You and your students FSA ID which can be attained at https://fsaid.ed.gov

· Social Security numbers for parent and student

· 2019 Federal Income tax return for you and your student (or W-2s and records of money earned if you/your child did not file in 2019)

· If you are not a U.S. Citizen, you will need your Alien Registration Number

During the WebEx, Mrs. Manchette will review each question on the application to guide you through a successful FAFSA completion. We look forward to you joining us.


2. We would like to remind our parents that have a student in the Exceptional Student Education (ESE) program here at Gulf Coast to please complete the ESE Parent Survey at http://www.esesurvey.com before May 31. This survey is provided by the Florida Department of Education and will help us better support your child. Thank you in advance for your time.


3. Congratulations to the members of the Gulf Coast Scholar Bowl. They competed against Golden Gate, Lely, Palmetto Ridge and Naples High School this past Wednesday and came in 1st place! These students have been working very hard to stay sharp and ready for any competition they can find. We would also like to thank their sponsor, Mrs. Liz Mongiello, for her time and efforts working with these students.


4. Good luck to the GC wrestling team this weekend as we have 3 wrestlers competing now at regionals with a chance to advance to the state competition.


Best of luck to the GCHS boys soccer team as they look to advance to the state championship game. Sharks host Spanish River for the 7A state semi-final game tonight at Shark Stadium!
